URGENT:  IIS Virtual directories

Posted on 2004-04-30

I have a slight issue with IIS.  A developer created a web application with us.  Let us just call it "oranges" for reference.  This web application was a sub web of the default web.  The root url was

http://localhost/oranges/

I have since created it's own web listening on port 8080.  So the root url is:

http://localhost:8080/

However, he has a lot of code that is looking for /oranges/etc/etc....
So I created a virtual directory called "oranges".  This url works:

http://localhost:8080/oranges/

But I want

http://localhost:8080/ 

to be all that the user will see.  How can I do this?  Is it a matter of configuring IIS?  BTW, it is a .NET project.  Or is it a matter of a configuration in .NET that would map /oranges to /.  

Please help.

Can't you set the Home Directory to /oranges/etc/etc as you wish ?

Basically, you can set the Home Directory, by clicking the Site's Property, then select Home Directory tab, then edit the Local Path to map the path you want.

Hope this helps

I agree with Ryancys , you can set the Home directory to..

C:\...\oranges\ - location where all your application files exists. so under configuration menu look for HomeDirectory and set it and try you won;t be having any problems..it should be ok now..
after you set ...try

htt://localhost:8080/ - it will run..

best of luck..

ijenkins,

If this is IIS 5 or IIS6

Just create a new Web Site.
 for the IP address use ALL ASSIGNED
Then pick 8080 as the port, localhost as the Host Header
map it to C:\...\oranges as the new root

ALSO...make sure the IUSR_<SERVERNAME> and IWAM_<SERVERNAME>
permissions are set correctly to the oranges directory.
